    Angry Oh weaning...period hormonal issues TMI inside.

    Sooo I recently weaned my 2 yr 6 m old, three weeks ago.
    I got what WAS I assumed my normal period as it started within the same three days it always does.
    Started off normal - why hello.
    Day two - hey it's cool. eat cookies
    Day three - OK. It's lighter. Sweet.
    Day four - ?? where are you?
    Day five - ???? hello?
    Day six - ??? Ok I am done.
    Day 7 - WHY HELLO, PERIOD.

    Normal?
    Yes? should I panic?
    Should I just assume this is normal because I feel fine.

    What is it typically like?
    I had to wean pretty fast due to my general anxiety getting out of hand.

    Welcome to the forum!

    I don't think we can tell whether this is normal or not based on the data you have. Is this your first postpartum period? If so, it's normal for it to be a little wonky compared to your pre-baby norm. The first few cycles can be longer or shorter or heavier or lighter than "normal", though they generally settle down to a more predictable pattern as time goes on. If this is your first postpartum cycle, it might be a good idea to check in with your midwife or obstetrician, since 30 months is quite w bit longer than average without a cycle. It might be a good idea to have some basic bloodwork done; I particularly advocate all moms getting tested for thyroid function.

    You might also want to pick up a copy of Toni Weschler's book "Taking Charge of Your Fertilty". Using that book and a good thermometer, you can start charting your fertility signs and if there is something wrong, you may be able to pick up on it that way.
